    Classic Syrian Cinema Film At Our Listeners' Request by Abdellatif Abdul-Hamid

    Synopsis: Tuesday in small-town Syria in 1969 means only one thing: gathering at the local bigwig's house to hear the popular radio show *At Our Listeners' Request* To a nostalgic soundtrack of classic Arabic ballads, the film's cast of oddball characters pursue their dreams and romances, but the radio brings more than they bargained for: news of the Apollo moon landing, reports of bombings on the border with Israel. And when the town's young hero is drafted, the radio's songs become more poignant still.

    Synopsis: Soudabeh reunites with her artistic essence and finds love again, by meeting and falling for an artist who unknowingly changes the direction of her paintings and her view on art and love. (15 mins)
